Gets popcorn.


..??

 

 

I deal with many businesses for Mini parts and other things around the world and have been going back to the 70's. Of these, there's many I have long term business relationships and some that I started back in the early 80's that endure to this day.

 

I've had a few dealings with Mini Sport going back to the 80's. Everytime I've been burnt and everytime I had given them another go, thinking that 'surely they must have changed' but alas, nothing but utter and bitter disappointment. In my last dealings with they, they were quite dishonest. To me, they no longer exist.

 

In regards to Mini Spares, well, it's like chalk and cheeze compared to the other lot. For one thing, what they say they have in stock, they actually do. The parts have usually been of a high quality and when there's been an issue, it's been no fuss what so ever to resolve. They are delightful to deal with and many other businesses (not just Mini Spares Parts) could learnt a lot from their model.

Uprated guts apparently, which can't be a bad thing

I believe that we must not confuse between the professionalism and diligence of a company, and the quality of its products.

Tom and Mick from Minisport are not exactly the best sellers in terms of customer service, but as I said the other day, they have items of better quality than their top rival.

We're privileged as mini owners that we have so much choice of suppliers. Owners of other marques - even modern classics - can be stuffed when a simple but irreplaceable part can't be sourced, or are held to ransom by a sole supplier.
